It doesn't seem right does it. Transistor voltage/current isn't linear, but going from 1.25v to 1.4v with a clockspeed bump shouldn't double power consumption lol.

Sexy looking backplate - but overclocks arent that impressive imo. Reference with aftermarket can beat that. Maybe that particular card isnt a great overclocker.

No reason it wouldnt be. My guess is they arent pushing them hard enough and/or are actually finding stable clocks.
